Abstract: The U.S. EPA's Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory (AEERL) is evaluating technologies fueled with biomass waste and/or energy crops for generation of electrical and thermal energy. Energy produced from biomass fuels mitigates greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, and other air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and air toxics. Advanced energy conversion technologies that are efficient, economically feasible, and environmentally sound are being targeted for development, demonstration, and eventually commercialization in both developed and developing countries. AEERL is managing three biomass-to-energy research, development, and demonstration projects. All three projects became a reality due to the initial funding from the DoD's Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the cooperation of the U.S. Government, state governments, and private industry. This paper provides the details and status of the projects.
